I work as a Licensed Professional Counselor with 3-7 year old's and their families at The Old Mill Center for Children and Families. I'm adjusting to a normal scheduled life after 4 years as a wilderness therapist with Catherine Freer Wilderness Therapy Expeditions, doing 3-4 week expeditions with teens. I took a couple Tom Brown classes in the early 1990's and Coyote Mentoring Week-long at the WAS last summer and have been applying it in my work in counseling. I am interested in how Nature Connection Mentoring, Cultural Mentoring, and maybe Regenerative Living Skills could be applied to counseling and the development of Nature Therapy as a counseling approach.

Very interesting group. Nature therapy hadn't been on my radar at all. My early career as a park ranger has not linked in any real way with my longer and current career with mental health and addiction counseling. I've entered the social media realm cautiously and privately.
Thanks for the invitation - I'll be following the conversation!
Hi Todd. Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you found us and hope you make yourself at home here. Your work and background are fascinating. I'm sure you'll find many connections here. We don't have a nature therapy or health group yet - I'm thinking the time may have come. The Natural Teachers Network may speak to you. There's also another member, Walker Korby, who is doing a lot of work around regenerative skills. If I think of more forum resources I'll let you know. Cheers!
